I’ve not posted anything in AGES due to college stuff/starting uni/being on holiday/being overly lazy/running out of resin
However, I have still been making progress (slowly)
lots of pictures:
Close up of clip detail (its a real bullet shell so its extra cool)
all the main pieces cleaned up and sprayed black, well, covered in dust cuz i’ve just been sanding
Also note the appearance of the grip! (say hi grip) the detail on the grip is a piece of cut Worbla, which is mainly used in costume making, but it has a textured surface so is perfect for this job a̶c̶t̶u̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶i̶ ̶j̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶h̶a̶d̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶l̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶r̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶o̶u̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶g̶o̶o̶d̶ ̶i̶d̶e̶a̶
trigger in place. The whole trigger section of the gun is not so easy to replicate irl, as the finger guard comes far too close to the grip beaning that the gun would be very uncomfortable to hold, and the trigger itself had to be made thicker, as the one in game is very thin and would break off easily.
barrel 1 + cast. I was using algenate (the stuff people use to cast hands and other body parts ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) for the mold as its very cheap. It’s not great. The mold is very delicate and soft, so the first attempt failed. The second try was a lot better and, although not perfect, could be tidied up afterwards. Believe it or not, they are both the same length, the photo turned out like an optical illusion
The two barrels stuck together.
Main body parts all assembled, ready for the barrel
Once the barrels are dry, its a case of sticking them onto the body - which is basically the end!
What I need to decide now is what colour scheme to paint this one. I was thinking not the infinity colours because everyone seems to do that - something more subtle and realistic
oh and yes, I will be working on a melee attachment
